Question about Cars & Trucks
I am assuming you removed the distributor? If so identify #1 cylinder in the firing order. It must be at top dead center (TDC) on the compression stroke. The timing marks should be lined up dead on at center. Then, you install the distributor with the rotor pointing directly at #1 cylinder. It is possible to be a gear notch off in either direction. If it is dead on then the engine will start. From there you will need to set the ignition timing with a timing light to correct advance by rotation of the distributor. May be 6 - 8 degrees BTDC? Consult manual for correct advance degrees.
